I just came across a technique, that is hopefully new to some of you, to build traffic to your site and to build credibility. Basically, you are going to combine the power of Yahoo Answers with the power of YouTube. The first step is to go to answers.yahoo.com and find a question related to your niche. You then create a screen capture video, using either Camtasia, CamStudio, or Jing that answers the question. This is really simple because it takes no more time than just going through the process and talking it out as you go. Once you have your video created, jump over to YouTube and upload your video. Make sure that you add your website's URL in the description, and make sure that you fill in all of the relevant keywords. Once the video is up on YouTube, jump back over to Yahoo answers, find the question that you were answering and refer them to your YouTube video. This kind of thing won't get blocked as self-promotion by Yahoo Answers because you are sending them to a tutorial and not your actual website. Somewhere in your tutorial, however, you can promote your website. This is a technique that is using the new wave of video marketing. These types of methods, using video, are quickly replacing the old methods article marketing. Google owns YouTube, therefore it tends to rank videos from YouTube pretty high. Using this technique, you will get traffic to your website from two different sources. You will get traffic from people that find the video on YouTube, as well as traffic from people searching for the answer to their question on Yahoo.
